Book a Break in Bangkok & Stay in a Luxury Hotel

Amy Van De Casteele

From the bustling Chao Phraya River with its barges and water taxis, to the golden spires of centuries-old temples, as well as the flash and glitter of recently erected skyscrapers, Bangkok is a city full of surprises, exoticism and its own brand of quirky beauty. If you want to book a break in Bangkok and stay in a luxury hotel while exploring this wonder of the east, look no further than HotelTravel.com and take advantage of our exclusive discounts.

On Silom Road, near the banks of the Chao Phraya, you will find the Lebua at State Tower. This majestic 5 star hotel boasts spacious suites and offers its guests spectacular views of the skyline and the river, making it very highly recommended by HotelTravel.com customers. Right on the Riverside, Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok provides lavish 5 star accommodation which includes access to the boutique spa, swimming pool and the hotel’s stylish eateries, while in Ploenchit the Hansar Bangkok provides elegantly furnished suites and is just 21 kilometres from Don Muang Airport.

Whether you want to ride down the Chao Phraya in a longtail boat, explore the crowded warren of Chatuchak Weekend Market, with its mind-boggling diversity of products, clothing and food for sale, or embark on a sight-seeing tour of the city’s many beautiful temples, you will be dazzled by the city’s charming blend of tradition and modernity. The obvious attractions to visit are the majestic temples such as Wat Arun and the floating market at Damnoen Saduak but you can also opt to take in some of the city’s more unusual attractions.

These include the phallic shrine dedicated to the goddess Tuptim, which can be found in the grounds of the Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel, and the Erawan Museum in Samut Prakan which is crowned with a rather overwhelming three-headed elephant statue that rises 29-metres into the air and makes quite the focal point.

If you’ve got a strong stomach and a taste for the grotesque you can also go to the Bangkok Forensic Museum but if not, why not book a tour of the klongs (canals) and marvel at the temples, mansions and rustic houses which front onto the water.
